Although quite a few vintage A.C. cars are still in service, not one of their presumably-enthusiastic owners rose to the bait cast by the Editor in the November issue of Motor Sport, when he criticised certain features of S. F. Edge’s dogmas, nor did Mr. Henderson, of A.C. Cars, Ltd., accept the challenge. However, it may be stated that, although we queried whether placing the gearbox in unit with the back axle did not destroy the very quality of low unsprung weight which Edge championed, “S.F.” did claim that, as the propeller shaft casing and axle casing were made of aluminium alloy, this assembly was no heavier than a conventional rear axle, so that unsprung weight was unaffected by the presence of the gearbox. We quite expected someone to shoot us down on this point!
